You guys are the Nevada Student Section of the Week, beating out Boulder City, Bishop Manogue and the Palo Verde Jungle. What did it take to stand out as one of the best in Nevada?

McQueen: Our school makes a lot of different spirit shirts, so everyone can dress up! We also have spirit buckets where leadership throws out different bead necklaces and foam fingers which hypes up the student section. This year a lot of students bought megaphones for the games which gets everyone riled up!  

What is the most memorable game you have ever attended as a member of the student section?

McQueen: Memorable games are always the Reno High VS McQueen games because that is our rival! Both schools get really excited and everyone is always on the edge of their seat. The 2019 game was very memorable because McQueen won the game and the whole student section flooded the field afterwards.

Favorite theme?

McQueen: McQueens favorite theme is blackout because then the seniors get to wear their senior jerseys or shirts! We can also do colorful face paint at this game, which makes it stand out more! 

Favorite chant?

McQueen: McQueen’s favorite chant is definitely the fight song. This is our favorite because we all sing it after touchdowns at football games and wins of any sports game.

Outside of you guys, is there one student section that you have seen or heard about where you think, “Man, that is a good student section?”

McQueen: A student section that we all think looks really good is the Manogue student section. There are always so many people decked out in spirit wear and they all look like they have so much fun. We play them on Friday in football, so we are excited to see our student sections compare! 

This is not a one-person operation. We know a lot of people took a part in this. Who would you like to thank for making McQueen the best this week?

McQueen: McQueen would like to thank the Leadership Class for getting the word out on when games are being held in the week. A big thanks goes out to our Media Committee who makes all the social media posts. We also want to thank our whole student body for showing up to the games and supporting teams! We couldn’t do it without all the students and student-athletes!

Storm: I think the activities we do involve the Storm & how much everyone participates is what makes us stand out. We have unique chants & cheers, and when we blast music everyone shouts and it doesn’t miss a beat. 

What is the most memorable game you have ever attended as a member of the student section?

Storm: Quarry Bowl 2019 was the most memorable football game. All of Rocklin High School showed up to the game at Whitney. The most spirited game ever, we were beyond loud & it was a blue sea.

Hooligans: It took a lot of planning and advertising to get our student section up and running this year considering it’s been over a year since we’ve had one. Something that made this weeks section unique is that it was at an away game. We really showed out for our team and not at our home field!

What is the most memorable game you have ever attended as a member of the student section?
